If your pet has worms that look like white rice or sesame seeds, you will need to see the vet for drontal or droncit. Over the counter wormers and wormers that you can buy at the feed store will not work for tapeworms.
Most vets will not require that you bring the pet in for exam if you have a relationship with them. They will ask you to describe the tapeworm and you can go by and pick up medication. This will save you the cost of an office visit.
